Are you waiting for that time when “everything will fall into place?” When the economy will be better, when your situation will be better, when you’ll have different people around you? Are you wishing for a different kind of relationship, for a different you, for a different body, for a different career?

Are you thinking that there will be some day when you can rest? When there’s going to be comfort, when you’ll feel safe? When you’ll feel nothing but pride?

The Road to Success…


You know the saying that “the road to success is always under construction?” It’s a constant process, a neverending battle.

Failure is not the opposite of success. It’s a stepping stone. An important element of it. Each and every single time you fail, you’re actually getting closer to success.

Everybody Wants to Go to Heaven, But No One Wants to Die

Everybody wants to go to Heaven, but no one wants to die.

Everybody wants to be a bodybuilder, but no one wants to lift heavy weights.

Everybody wants to be successful, to enjoy financial freedom, to be the masters of their own destiny, yet no one wants to grind, to fight, to claw their way from defeat to success.

Declutter Your Mind

There seems to be so much stress and worries and errands and just so much noise that we must all endure and overcome these days. There’s so much information and entertainment and social media and news, and all that begs for a bit of space inside our minds.

And thus we sometimes cannot find the calm that we so desperately need…

So, how do you declutter your mind?

How do you get rid of excess information or take a moment to find peace and tranquility in this ocean of chaose we call day-to-day livin?

The mind is complex and confusing, the essence of who we are as humans. It is often covered in old hurts and traumas, and layered in so many levels of consciousness it feels impossible to sort through it all.

Most of the times, even to our own selves, we don’t make much sense.

So how do we begin decluttering? It’s actually not difficult, if you give it a little thought: simplifying is, by definition, easy.

You can declutter your mind with simple actions, little things that can make a big difference, especially when used in combination.
